You may have a point on the focal distance thing you mentioned. The worst part about the picture that I could see, was that I missed that nice looking Harley cruising by in the background.















Or not!!!

Nice shots, especially the bridge photos. Old bridges make really good subject matter don't they. The sun peeking through the framework adds nice atmosphere to the second photo. I might have shot the Orangatang vertical and a little tighter on the face, and like before, I would go with a strong horizontal for the reflection shot. Overall I have to again say I'm impressed with the artistic talent of our group. The d5000 is a nice camera, and from the looks of thing you've learned how to use it pretty well already.

Thanks so much, the zoo pics were shot with a little fuji point and shoot and the bridge was the d5000. I see what you mean about the reflection and the Orangatang. I guess you do that by just cropping if you dont get it when you shoot it ?

Thanks, T.A.

You'd be surprised at the difference a little crop makes. And yea, I know it's not always possible to shoot an image the way you want it. Trust me, I have to get what I can take on a lot of occasions. Most people are content to show their image as it was shot, but I store the original and then crop, tone and sharpen to get the frame as close to what I wanted to shoot as possible. You'll notice I took out the seeds in the lower section of the frame with a cloning tool. In journalism I can't do that, but for personal images I do small things like that all the time.

What's that in the tangs hand ? Is it an illusion, or is that something between her finger and thumb? Almost looks like jewelry or something. Tim, you throw that beast an earring? Or something worse yet?

Y'all are putting up some good pics. I need to get involved with some . Ebbs has good photo skillz.

My favorite ape shot.

As long as we're posting primates, this was shot at the Jackson zoo recently. And Trophy, no smart aleck remarks about self portraits.

Yep Trophy got it she was eating sunflower seeds. It was amazing to watch her, she was so delicate with them. She could hold them with her fingers and split them open with her teeth and eat seed out of it.

Can the seeds and little things like that be done with the basic photoshop, elements I think they call it or do you need one better. What do you need to spend for a decent editing software?
